CWG 2018: Kidambi Srikanth settles for men's singles silver

Kidambi Srikanth vs Chong Wei Lee Final Live Streaming Time in IST and Live Telecast Details of CWG 2018 Men's Singles Badminton Gold Medal Match

Moving on to the badminton Men's Singles event, the Final where a Gold Medal is up for grabs as the prize for the victor of this mouth-watering clash, Kidambi will be looking to taste sweet revenge against his opponent Lee Chong Wei.

Lee, who had most of the crowd on his side, now boasts a trophy haul that includes three Olympic silver medals and three Commonwealth singles golds. By the time, it seemed like Srikanth started losing the momentum and this is when Lee picked up pace. In the men's singles semi-final, the Malaysian avoided an all-Indian men's final by ousting HS Prannoy, whom he defeated 21-16 9-21 21-14 in the semis. Before the 2018 CWG, Srikanth and Chong Wei had last met in 2015 Sudirman Cup, where the Indian fell to the Malaysian legend in just two games.

Ben Simmons has starred in helping the Philadelphia 76ers to a win over the Miami Heat in the first day of the playoffs. Embiid was a spectator in Game 1 of the first-round series because of a broken orbital bone around his left eye.

Srikanth, on Sunday, lost 21-19, 14-21, 14-21 to Chong Wei, failing to follow up his Team Gold with another yellow metal in the singles event.

Srikanth is the first Indian to reach number one in the world in the men's rankings. Srikanth had started well, taking the the lead initially. In a close fought encounter, both Kidambi and Lee were breathing heavily on the neck of each other, hardly allowing an inch of space to gather points.

Slowly silently he walked through and finally with a big inside-out smash into the open court, the Indian took over Lee for the first time in the game, heading into the mid-set interval with a two-point cushion.

Russian Federation 'severely condemns' joint strikes on Syria
Anatoly Antonov, the Russian Ambassador to the USA , says the military action threatens Russia - and there will be consequences. However, the Observatory says the facilities were evacuated by the Syrian government days before.

The Commonwealth Games gold rush, where Srikanth also partook to help win the team medal for India in Australia's Gold Coast, also endorses India's rise in a game that greatly tests physical stamina and skill sets. I admire him for his aggressive style of play and when you're playing someone like him you have to be at your best.
